IRVING, Texas – Two of the Cowboys' three main injury concerns attended a light Wednesday practice with eyes on Saturday's game against the Jets.
Morris Claiborne, DeMarcus Lawrence and Rolando McClain are all coping with injury issues on a short week ahead of the New York game. Claiborne is tending to a mild hamstring injury he suffered at the tail end of last week's loss to Green Bay, while Lawrence is dealing with a chest injury.
Claiborne and Lawrence attended Wednesday's non-padded practice, but they didn't participate in team activities, instead undergoing rehab work with team athletic trainers. McClain was not present at the media portion of Wednesday's practice, and he has been undergoing concussion protocol.
That said, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he felt optimistic about all three players.
"Rolando is doing well. He's been involved in all the walk-throughs," Garrett said. "He will be a limited guy in practice today and I would say the same thing for the other guys."
That's good news for a Cowboys team playing its second-straight game on short rest. With the obvious exception of Tony Romo, who continues to miss due to his broken clavicle, there's plenty of reason for hope that they'll have a full allotment of players available when they host the Jets on Saturday evening.
